About Deirdre Hochstetler

Being a fourth generation Floridian the mountains have always been a source of wonderment for me. I have many fond memories of summer vacations with my family camping in the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Appalachians. The cool crisp air, winding mountain roads, rushing crystal clear streams, and lush flora were a refreshing contrast to the Florida heat.

When my work brought me to Atlanta two decades ago I was delighted to discover the mountains a short two hours away. Unlike the Carolinas, the Georgia mountains are still relatively undiscovered by tourists. My retirement goal is to trade the hustle and bustle of Atlanta for the quiet unspoiled beauty of the north Georgia mountains. This mountain cabin represents a promise to myself that someday that dream will come true.

Deirdre Hochstetler purchased this lodge in 2012

Why Deirdre Hochstetler chose Suches

The Chattahoochee National Forest is where the Appalachian mountain range begins and is the one true mountainous area in North Georgia. Its edges are dotted by quaint mountain towns like Blue Ridge, Blairsville, Dahlonega, and Helen, but the only civilization inside the forest is the community of Suches. With ten wilderness areas and six wildlife management areas most of the forest is unspoiled and is as wild as when the Cherokee Indians roamed. For a nature lover the natural beauty and abundant wildlife that encompass Suches are about as close to heaven as you can get on this earth.

What makes this lodge unique

The Riverlands Lodge sits 50 feet from the Toccoa River which is one of the premier trout streams of Georgia. This stretch of the Toccoa is privately owned and heavily stocked offering excellent fly fishing opportunities. The cabin is nestled in a small river valley surrounded by mountains offering a 360 degree panoramic view. Herds of deer regularly graze in the open fields while wild ducks, herons, and beavers can been found along the river bank.

Growing up I wanted to be a Forest Ranger so I have added all the amenities to the property that make it feel like you have your own private park. There is a picnic pavilion on the riverfront with an in-ground charcoal grill, and a rustic fire ring surrounded by benches to roast your hotdogs and marshmallows. Horse shoes can be played while the picnic is being prepared.

While I enjoy the outdoors I also like to be comfortable so the cabin is setup with all the amenities needed to enjoy your time inside as well. The cabin was built to be a family home so it has a spaciousness needed to accommodate a variety of people. The four bedrooms are separated to afford privacy to each bedroom making it ideal for family reunions.

I thoroughly enjoy the simple beauty of Suches, and this cabin puts you in the middle of the very best of it. I am proud to offer my guests the chance to share this experience and hope they find Suches as heavenly as I do.

Toccoa River Frontage With Year-Round Mountain Views
average rating of 4.96 based on 25 reviews

Beautiful, quiet, away from it all setting. A quick drive to the swinging bridge & numerous trails.

  • 4 of 5

The perfect getaway for a large family. Plenty of space to stretch out, play games, fish, grill and gather round the fire pit. Clean, well taken care of home offering everything needed for cooking & entertaining. We visited in February, shorter days, so packed in as much sight seeing as possible during the days and enjoyed the evenings preparing Smores by the fire pit, relaxing on the porches and enjoying the hot tub. Morning coffee is ten times better with this view. Peaceful!

We had a great time! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home!

Yearly for many years we reconnect with our long time friends and ride our bikes through the mountains. We heard Such's was a great place and we were excited about a new ride. The Cabin was located in one of the most beautiful locations! The Cabin was exceptional, well stocked, tons of space for everyone. It was picturesque!! We absolutely loved and enjoyed this beautiful Cabin!!!!!

Fantastic Place for a Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute blast at Riverlands. To be truthful, we have a blast everywhere no matter the circumstances, but this property was really, really perfect for us.

It’s rare a vacation rental home that has enough toilet paper and paper towels (we always travel with more), much less tissue, so thats off to the property owners for their level of detail. We all like to cook and the kitchen is extremely well stocked with everything we could have possibly wanted.

The entire home was so nice and clean and while we didn’t get any outdoor time, we loved the space outdoors too. We didn’t take advantage of any of the technology, but WOW….what a huge TV in the main area and TVs in bedrooms too. The guest information book was thoughtfully put together with all sorts of area "to dos" and outdoor hikes and other excursions. We learned about Sosebee Cove and had a fantastic short hike there. We're so appreciative of dog friendly properties and so thankful our canine kids could join in the fun. As we say in the dog training world at Cold Nose College, click/treat to you! Well done! We'll definitely be back!
